This is a stunning whale done in a smooth green finish made from Argelite stone. The beautiful curves, the motion of the diving whale, and the finesse and smooth finish of the stone made this an eye catching find for me.
The piece itself is large enough to be a centrepiece. Simiuni like to carve whales and does a splendid job doing so. They are life like and full of motion.
Signed by the artist, also comes with igloo tag.
